the public is engageed and when the public that sent elected officials to washington makes clear to the elected officials that what the evaluations are in their jobs, and in this case, whatever the state is, there's a majority in the state that's disappointed in the vote taken, if the vote was no, by a united states senator, so we, as the president did, call on the frustrated constituents to make their frustration known. >> generally, the way they do that is in election. are you waiting for the next election? >> no, i don't think it requires an election, necessarily, to bring about that change. i think that there is an opportunity for americans who are frustrated by the failure of the senate to act in a common sense way, in a way supported by the vast majority of the american people, to make their unhappiness and frustration known sooner than the next election, and, you know, there's a variety of means available to the the citizens of the country to communicate with their lawmakers and make views known. >> the background checks -- >> look, i think it's no. the president is commit
christie right before the election. however, here in the united states, there's still a large contingent of climate change doubters. what do you say to that part of the u.s. to persuade them that limate change is real? >> well, my simple advice is take a look again at the picture of president obama and governor christie. according to the ground rules of u.s. presidential campaigns, such an embrace three days before election day was an absolute taboo. and talk to the people in new jersey or new york that had their homes destroy,ir commundestd, due to the extreme weather events. look at the reports on china in january and february. one example, just to give you a visual image, is the melting of the arctic sea ice in my part of the world, the consequence that 180,000 caffles froze to death out in the field in china. so whether we call it climate change or not, i mean, that is a political concept which i know has positive or negative connotations, but the ice melting is a reality. and the consequences of the ice melting in my part of the world is extreme weathers in the united states and in
around the country that we as elected conservatives were elected to serve. after all they know what they are for, so why don't we? perhaps it is because it is so easy in washington to forget. in washington we debate public policy so persistently that we can lose sight of the fact that policy is our means, and they are not ends. we think we were for the court taxes or spending restraint, but those are policies we advocate. they're not what we're really four. what we're for are the good things that the bucs policies will yield to the american people. what we're really for is the kind of society that those policies would allow the american people to create. together. too oftenne idea missing from our public debate, it is that idea, together. in the last few years we conservatives seem to have abandoned words like together, compassion, and community, as if they're only possible meanings were as some sort of secret code for stateism. collective action does not only or even usually mean government action. conservatives cannot surrender the idea of community to the left. when it is the vit

. these officers acted heroically and protect the community and elected -- protected each other. i am so proud of the actions of the watertown police, state police, the boston police, it has been an incredible team. >> did he have a weapon and the boat? >> i was told there was an exchange of gunfire. i was not there when he was taken out of the boat. >> no miranda warning could you explain that? >> the fbi may want to explain that in a federal issue. >> had the boat then searched earlier in the day? >> know it had not. rights no miranda warning. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and potential charges involving acts of terrorism. the government has the opportunity right now, though i believe the suspect has been taken to a hospital. thank you. >> [indiscernible] >> this is still an ongoing investigation. we will be reviewing all of the evidence. before that canada decision is made, in terms of whether or not to seek the death penalty, you review all of the evidence and it is a very thoughtful, on process that is engaged. it is the attorney general of the depar

in the nation. by the way, christie's move is a reminder he's still running for re-election, not for 2016 yet. >>> as we wait for formal charges to be brought against the 19-year-old marathon bombing suspect federal and state authorities are trying to determine what led up to last monday's attack and what red flags might have been missed. for more on that joined by nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff. it seems to me the unanswered question everybody would like to know of, number one, where did these guys test? nobody believes this was the first time they did these bombs on monday. that they must have tested them somewhere. the second, what was tamerlan, the older brother, doing in russia for six months? >> reporter: exactly. there's so many unanswered questions here. but let's start with the -- that russian report to the fbi in 2011 asking them to investigate tamerlan. what sparked that -- the russian request? what information do they have? the fbi says that the russians didn't provide any backup. you look at their statement. they said they asked them to investigate him

newly elected member of the house of representatives joining us in the 213th congress, mrs. wagner from missouri, so the gentlelady from missouri, please join us in this conversation and offer us your perspective. mrs. wagner: talking about making life better and for working americans across this country. i'm a proud freshman member of the 113th congress and we were elected to tackle the big problems and no bigger problem than getting hard-working americans back to work with the skills they need during this tough economy. today, the federal government currently operates more than 50 different job-training programs, many of which are duplicative at a cost of $18 billion annually to taxpayers. with nearly 20 million americans unemployed or underemployed, it's time to cut through the red tape and start training individuals with the skills they need to find high-paying, middle-class jobs. that's why this house in the 113th congress passed the skills act and streamlines job training programs, including many that were identified by the government accountability office and eliminates unnecessa
recipients famously called them obama phones. there is one supporter who boasted to media during the election that all minorities should support the president because he gave them free cell phones. some now propose expanding the free phone service to broadband but mccaskill says the current program is so far out of control we should scrap it and start over, not expand it. jenna? jo jim, thank you. >> reporter: yes, ma'am, the investigators are turning to the boston bomber's past as they search for answers in the deadly attacks. a look at the brother's ties to chechnya and how those could shape the progress of the investigation. >>> some families are allowed to return home after that deadly plant explosion in west, texas. the blast devastated that small community. the latest on recovery efforts there just ahead. s old t for business travelers. the act of soaring across an ocean in a three-hundred-ton rocket doesn't raise as much as an eyebrow for these veterans of the sky. however, seeing this little beauty over international waters is enough to bring a traveler to tears. we're putting the won

close to one final point to my americans who share the belief in free enterprise who elected me. america is a nation of immigrants but republicans and democrats have failed to enforce the laws. we're not going to deport them. so let's secure the border. let's bring these people out to of the shadows. they will undergo a background check, they will pay a fine, they will start paying taxings. they won't qualify for federal benefits. we all wish we did not have this problem but we do. leaving things the way they are, that is the real amnesty. we have to fix it.
